Do you prefer long and somewhat confusing usernames which take (most people) a while to learn and pronounce or shorter and simpler ones?

edit: might as well as expand this a bit. What kind of usernames do you like in general?

I like my username more than anyone else's. Ausaudriel being a close second.

My username is easy to pronounce, though. It's pronounced Patch-ee-sue You-toe-roo.

I like names like mine. Usernames that could probably pass as a name itself (but not always), haha. Some of my favorites are Kaori, Klippy, Aerilyn, Requility, Marz, just short stuff like that basically. I don't tend to like usernames with more than one word, even though I myself came here with one. SilverSmeargleSplatter. That's a fun one, isn't it? I still like it though, don't get me wrong haha. It was fun. :D

This thread title is hot btw.

I'd prefer a shorter username, that doesn't mean anything. I like mine but it's very long and fierce. So something around 3 or syllables is usually nice. 3 usually being the best. I like words that look nice too. Some letters look better than others put next to one another. O is an ugly letter, so is m. Stuff like that. I would have liked to have been more typographic in choosing mine but oh we'll.

I usually pick my usernames based on things that relate to me personally. For example, my current username has something to do with my real full name (which I am not revealing xD), and it coincidentally also sounds like the real English word 'synergy', which is a rather nice word with a cool meaning, I must say. :D Basically, my chosen username must represent me in a way, and I must not feel weird wearing that username around.

I usually like usernames that are 3-4 syllables long. It's the perfect medium between being not too short and not too long, or at least that's how I look at it. I also prefer single word usernames to those that use multiple words/names together. That being said, there was a time when my username was Let's Get Lost Together. I liked the creativity of it, but I just felt like after a time, it was too long. Speaking of creativity, usernames that have that special meaning or significance is something I look for in a name.

Gavin also makes a good note that some letters look nicer together than others. I'll admit, there is a slight aesthetics factor when it comes to choosing a username for myself.

A few examples of my favorite usernames on PC, mines included, would be Ausuadriel, Abnegation, Logiedan, Sylphiel, and Sydian. The latter name being one I had for a short time. Good times, right Syd? :p

A username a certain someone once had and I liked mostly for its appearance was, Abercrombie. Which is sort of ironic, given the name in of itself.

I prefer simple usernames. I usually prefer them to be one word, two at most and not too long, but I also like to be creative with them, I like having names that make people interested but are also pleasant sounding, or a "pretty" name. Some unique ones Ive seen are Forever, Requility, Ausadriel and Sylphiel. I really like unique names such as those.

November 11th, 2012, 10:05 AM
I like one-worded usernames better than two or more-worded but I still like Leaf Storm though!, no matter how long or how short, as long as it doesn't have an underscore or a space or even numbers, I'm alright with it. lol Usually I prefer capitalized names than lower cases. Usually names that relate to my themes or my interests come to my head. lol

November 11th, 2012, 12:21 PM
i like my usernames..i don't care about the length i just like weird,funny,mystrious user names..

i also like the kind of names that is same twice..something like Horu Horu or Chi Chi chubby chubby lol it's so cool makes me lol :3..ohh! i should really try something like that :P

I don't usually like long usernames cos then I'd need a nickname to be referred by. I chose this name cos it's pretty simple and it has a nice ring to it. I don't mind underscores or numbers.

Some of my fave usernames I've seen here include Ausaudriel, Sylphiel, Morkula, Aerilyn, Toujours, Patchisou Yutohru, Cirno, Hiroshi Sotomura, Ayselipera, Drummershuff, Chairman Kaga, Frostweaver, Sydian, Logiedan and BinaryPeaches.

(Yeah most staff and ex-staff have such cool names)

November 11th, 2012, 1:50 PM
I like names that don't suck.
Unfortunately, mines sucks.

November 11th, 2012, 2:20 PM
It took me two years to learn how to spell Nick's username off by heart :( I had to go all the way to the forum leaders and copy+paste it from there whenever I wanted to reference him :( NICK WHY DID YOU GO ALL WEEABOO WHEN CHOOSING YOUR FINAL USERNAME

I don't mind long usernames at all, I think they're classy, as long as they're not obnoxiously long or composed of unattractive words. My favorite usernames are the ones I can quickly turn into nicknames for when I can't be bothered typing them out, though. It gives me a sense of familiarity that I thoroughly enjoy.

November 11th, 2012, 2:23 PM
I prefer simple usernames of 1/2 words, if they're english that certainly makes them easier to remember too :P

I like my usernames short and not too confusing. With the exception of my current alias of course, which is simply but confusing to people that don't know the reference.

No decorative x's or i's or stupid **** like that. Proper English and Spacing. Nothing else.

November 11th, 2012, 2:47 PM
I hate long usernames, it's annoying. It must be so annoying always logging in with a long username. Idk.

November 11th, 2012, 3:31 PM
I don't like long usernames.It should be short and easy to remember.

...My username however is probably one of the worst.

November 11th, 2012, 4:01 PM
Names that are combinations of actual words, or at least, the name is phonetic. That way it's easy to remember and you can actually type it. Random numbers/letters just put me off in terms of messaging those people lol.

November 11th, 2012, 4:06 PM
I prefer unique, medium-length names (despite my name being short, ugly and based off a kpop band, but you know) such as Ayselipera, which is one of my favorite I've ever seen, right behind Ausaudriel and Sylphiel. I love names that have a sort of smooth twang at the end like '-el.' Of course, I can never come up with unique names that have that kind of style so it's irrelevant either way. D:

November 11th, 2012, 4:14 PM
I like unique names that aren't too long (unlike several people here I don't find mine to be long. Anything longer than Nick's would be too long imo). Two words is usually the max I would consider to be a really nice username, honestly. I'm too lazy to think of usernames that I really like but they are out there, haha.

November 12th, 2012, 4:36 AM
I like short, one-worded usernames. As long as it doesn't have any underscores or numbers, I'm good. :D

November 12th, 2012, 6:14 AM
I like creative and unique usernames. For example, my username came from a old username on Dailybooth called AaronWhatAaron. I realized that was way too long and shortened it to AWsquared which is shorter and more creative in my opinion. Anything more than 3 words is too long and is hard to read.
Also like usernames that sound like they could be actual names. Such as Sydian or Kouzan, the username I've been using on other forums.

Some names I really like on PC are BinaryPeaches, Sydian, Forever, Requility, Ausaudriel, Minzy, Toshiro , Sylphiel , Abnegation, Mr. Cat Dog, Aerilyn, Patchisou Yutohru.

Non PC usernames
Mintaka, Bikini Miltank, Avartus Cantus , Archaic , Neon Borealis, Dragonfyre, Ghetsis-Dennis , Goodbye Blue Monday , Aeralis , Ange Serena, Satoru Asahina, Wishful Thinking, teamVASIMR , Bouffalant Herdier, ghaskan, Eitarou, Dogasu.

a very long list...

November 12th, 2012, 10:45 AM
I don't care much about the length of usernames, as long as they sound interesting.

November 12th, 2012, 11:06 AM
Any name that is not to long nor too short is fine for me. I like medium sized names, in other words. So far, I haven't seen a particular name I can say I like the most, but on another site I visit now and then "irunwithscissors" is the one that I like the most.

November 12th, 2012, 2:05 PM
Come on guys, obviously names with letters are so last year.

But seriously I like all kinds of user names. The long ones can be fun to learn and some of the short ones are pretty unique themselves. As long as people don't go changing names, which I'm pretty sure you can't on here anyways, then I'm fine.

November 12th, 2012, 2:26 PM
I don't mind usernames that are short, but if they're like, a mile and a half long, use random numbers or letters, or if they're just hard to spell in general, then it gets to me.

I normally like unique usernames, like my favourite is 'Alinthea' from back in the day that I use to go by, now a lonely account I have has it. :(

If I was given the chance, I don't think I would go back to it, because I am known as Capt. Fabio now! XD

You know man, I saw a few days ago someone called Captain Fabiao OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. IT WAS FABIO BUT WITH ONE EXTRA LETTER BETWEEN THE I AND THE O. I don't remember where I saw it or whatever but yeah it was weird.

I prefer simplistic but creative usernames for the most part.

November 13th, 2012, 8:35 PM
In general, I like short or long usernames, as long as they don't have numbers, symbols, or underscores in it. I personally like Sydian, Abnegation, Harlequin, Aerilyn, and all that chiz.

November 14th, 2012, 12:34 PM
I don't mind either, but for myself, something short and sweet :3

I prefer it if the name was short to medium sized and didn't seem too abstract or "artsy" if it can be helped. Simple but easy to remember.

I like usernames that are catchy, unique, and have a lasting impact. Some such usernames have been long, others short, so I don't have a preference on length. Just as long as they're unique and creative. I had to go the "long username" route to get something I was satisfied with for myself.

November 17th, 2012, 8:59 AM
I like my username more than anyone else's. Ausaudriel being a close second.

My username is easy to pronounce, though. It's pronounced Patch-ee-sue You-toe-roo.
Lol that's not very easy for me XD
But I like witty usernames that involve some cultural reference. I applaud everyone who comes up with those names, because I could never come up with such things myself.
Also, the usernames I can't pronounce annoy me. >.<

I honestly have no preference. The only thing I would say about names is I prefer that they actually be words (whether real or made up) rather than a combination of words and numbers (unless done cleverly).
